East Providence Firefighters secure truck after being swallowed by the high tide
EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence Fire Department, which in the last few days helped put out two blazes in nearby Barrington and also rescued a deer, continued its very busy stretch Sunday, Jan. 12.
An East Providence Post/eastbayri.com reader submitted a photo (below) showing firefighters "securing a truck stuck in the sand and overcome by high tide as the winter sun sets across the river from the former Crescent Park property in Riverside at approximately 5 p.m. Sunday."
No one was reported injured during the incident.
As noted, EPFD also rescued a deer from the frigid waters of the upper reaches of Narragansett Bay off Bullocks Point Friday, Jan. 10. The deer was found to be in good stead and was delivered to the State Department of Environmental Management for release in Bristol.
